Daring Card Makers - Red & White

The challenge over on Daring Card Makers is to design a card using only RED AND WHITE on your cards- it doesn't have to be a Valentine themed card - it can be any theme- as long as use incorporate RED and WHITE on it.

I've been asked to make a birthday card for a lady who will be 100, but as she doesn't have much sight left I was asked to make something that she would be able to feel. She is also Welsh, so I have had a verse that I have printed for the insert and I was also asked to put happy birthday in Welsh on the front of the card.

I have covered the bottom half of the card with paper from Pink Petticoat and added a strip of paper across the top. I've used my favourite Sizzix die, the daisies as I thought she would feel the outline of the flowers and I've also used some glitter card to give it some texture, then added a gem to finish. The 100 has been cut out with my Cricut and I've printed out Happy Birthday in Welsh and mounted onto red card and added to the bottom right hand corner.
